Q: What would you give as a birthday gift to a fellow book lover? {FYI - My birthday is tomorrow!}

A: First off, Happy birthday Billy!! I hope you have the best birthday ever!

Secondly, to a fellow book lover friend, I have given Amazon gift cards. They get to choose what they want. Another great idea is a book pillow. You really don't know how much you need one, until you get one.

  7. I really enjoy Neil Gaiman's books. I haven't read Anansi Boys yet, however.

    Gift cards to a bookstore are the best. :-) I do love Amazon cards in particular. Although I rarely use them to buy gifts anymore. I tend to save them up until I get enough to buy something big that I need for the house.

    I hope you have a great weekend!

  11. On the Book Blogger Hop YES to the book pillow!! I listed that one too.
    In addition to other things, I also said a heating pad. Hey, depending on how good the book is, my reading posture may be something even my 10 year-old would give the side eye too.

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
